Tonight: JUNO Awards to announce winners & host virtual celebration
This year’s JUNO Awards in Saskatoon may have been cancelled due to the pandemic, but that hasn’t stopped CARAS from organizing a virtual celebration which is taking place tonight.
Tune in to CBC Gem, or CBC’s Facebook, YouTube and Twitter pages at 7 p.m. ET. for the 90-minute broadcast.
Along with celebrating winners in 42 different categories, the online show will feature performances by musicians Iskwe, Neon Dreams, the Dead South, and Alessia Cara, who was originally booked to host the original ceremony. Cara is nominated in six categories including Album of the Year, Single of the Year and Artist of the Year.
The content was compiled in advance, so organizers have asked artists to post their acceptance speeches on social media after the show.
Nominations in the Rap Recording of the Year category include 88GLAM, Classified, KILLY, NAV, and Tory Lanez. Lanez has the second most nominations behind Cara with five nominations in total.
